I agree and he did it as well as anyone. He peopled his songs with characters and places and situations where they had to make choices. Some simple, some not but choices were made and lines were drawn. Over time, these lines drew the lines of my own face.

I don't know your last line. I guess it is from the doc.

Your comments on KB and Hunter and others are well stated.The doc was easy to watch and I learned things I didn't know which is always good. To me he had to find a narrative to tell his story and he found quite a few. I liked the Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams stories. Neither lived long enough to test Tell's theory of rot and rust

Last line is "O, Brother, Where Art Thou?", one of the greatest films of this century. Perhaps one of the best soundtracks of ANY century.

"Thank God, your mama died givin' birth. If she'd have seen you, she'd have died of shame."
